When it comes to the subject of finishing off a room, you might want wooden skirting boards. With a huge choice available, it may be hard to choose.

Oak Skirting

 

Oak is a very popular wood when it comes to skirting boards. Oak is always classic and it holds up well over time. Any kind of wooden skirting board can be stained or painted, however if you have oak boards you may just simply want to cover it with a clear varnish. This will allow the natural shade to shine in your room.

If your budget covers a hardwood skirting, watch out for those selling it cheap. The quality of the product could be very low depending on the raw materials used in the manufacture of your boards. Low quality wood will twist and split, and can include useless knots, which are essentially holes in your skirting. When you spend on Oak Skirting, it would be a shame to buy a sub-par product.

We can also manufacture oak skirting boards in bespoke profiles and mouldings to suit precisely the design you are might be after.

Pine Skirting

 

Pine wood is commonly used in manufacturing and known for its majestic beauty and the pine cones that get scattered once they have fallen from the trees

It's advisable to take a look at the flexibleness that Pine skirting boards bring.  You can do any sort of finish on them, which makes them good for almost any room that you have. Pine boards can be stained or painted. You may repaint a board many times. Due to this as your style changes the same skirting boards can stay in place. It's also possible to use different wood stains to your boards to create a different look altogether.

 

Pine skirting boards are usually an excellent choice for many, for a few different reasons.  The first reason is usually the cost of the boards themselves. Pine is a relatively inexpensive type of wood and so the skirting boards manufactured from pine tend to be less expensive than other types of skirting boards. Another reason that people tend to like pine skirting boards is because they offer a great deal of flexibility as to what the final skirting board product will look like

Beech Skirting

 

Beech trees are commonly found in the UK. The longest beech hedge in the world can be found in Scotland, with it being 30 metres high and 530 metres wide!

Beech is visually attractive, which is why it is often used to make furniture and other products. For maintenance it is desirable as it does not easily chip or break and is simple to clean.

Ideal if you need a high quality hardwood without overly aggressive timber grains, or if you have existing Beech furniture then Beech Skirting Board is your number one choice.

Sapele Skirting

Sapele is medium to dark reddish brown with well-defined ribbon striping on quartered surfaces. The grain is interlocked or wavy with an effective even texture.

As standard, we use prime A-grade Sapele so we avoid dead knots, minimise twisting and cracks, and all in all supply our customers a superior quality product. Sapele is a vibrant timber which is commonly used as a Mahogany substitute. The timber is almost luminescent when seen from different angles and in different lights and reveals strong grain traits. Sapele Skirting is a fantastic choice if you need something special, different and beautiful.
